  • Glynwood's Senior Director or Regional Food, Megan Larmer was happy to participate in a roundtable hosted by the Hudson Valley Food Systems Coalition on February 24, 2021. Topics addressed included a detailed discussion of Glynwood's Food Sovereignty Fund, as well as relationship building and contracting between farms and community food access projects. Other presenters and efforts represented included: New York Ag and Markets, Nourish NY, Scenic Hudson, Dutchess Outreach, The Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York, among others.

  • Innovation Brief on Virtual CSA Fairs from the Local Food System COVID 19 Response project: "The COVID-19 pandemic and associated public health and social distancing mandates caused unprecedented shifts and disruptions for local and regional food systems (LRFS). AMS and the cooperating research team led by the University of Kentucky seek to enrich existing efforts within LRFS communities of practice who provide essential support to our nation’s local food producers. In order to provide innovations and best practices developed on the ground to support the local food sector, our team has partnered with 16 organizations that represent different marketing channels."

  • Glynwood and the Hudson Valley CSA Coalition contracted Lucy Marston to complete this landscape analysis in Winter 2019. The aim of this research was to assess what is currently being done by both farms and organizations within the Hudson Valley to address the issue of food access in order to help illuminate what part the Hudson Valley CSA Coalition and its member farms can play in working towards a solution.

  • From December 2017 through September 2018, Marc Goulet of Russell Research surveyed over 600 Hudson Valley residents to identify awareness, consideration and engagement with Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) in the Hudson Valley. This video discusses the findings of his research and gives marketing recommendations to CSA farmers. You can also click here to read our article summarizing his findings.

  • In these pages you will hear directly from those we serve about the differences that your support is making in their lives, their businesses, on our plates and in our communities. All of these efforts add up to defining our region through our continuing legacy of food and farming, bringing health to our economy, our environment, and, most importantly, our people.

  • Pastured Protein provides detailed information on the real challenges faced by regional meat producers, and also the opportunities. Increased knowledge, stronger networks, improved systems and new investment are recommended to support the stability and growth of pasture-based, humane, healthy meat production in the Hudson Valley.

  • Twenty years into Glynwood’s story as an organization, our work has evolved, but the core of bringing people together around the preservation and vitality of local environments remains the same.

  • On a warm, sunny day in late summer, Glynwood hosted our second annual Soil Health Field Day at our Farm Business Incubator property in New Paltz, New York. With support from a Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) Partnership Grant, Glynwood’s Director of Farm Stewardship, Dave Llewellyn, produced a day-long curriculum of instruction and demonstrations by leaders in the field of soil science and regenerative agriculture.

  • In October 2016, author Laura Lengnick visited the Hudson Valley for a workshop with our farm apprentices and tour of Glynwood’s farm. In this short interview, Laura highlights their lively discussion, climate vulnerability and the effects of climate change on farming practices – based on her book, Resilient Agriculture: Cultivating Systems for a Changing Climate (New Society Publishers, 2015).

  • With support from a Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) Partnership Grant, Glynwood’s Director of Farm Stewardship, Dave Llewellyn, produced a day-long curriculum of instruction and demonstrations by leaders in the field of soil science and regenerative agriculture. Presenters at our second annual Soil Health Field Day included Dr. Masoud Hashemi, UMass-Stockbridge School of Agriculture. In this clip, Llewellyn and Hashemi discuss the basics of soil health.

  • Fishkill Farms is a participant in Glynwood’s Cider Project, Kitchen Cultivars and CSA Coalition, and is this year’s Harvest Award recipient for its leadership and commitment to sustainable farming in the Hudson Valley. Here, Josh talks about a recent learning excursion to the UK’s established cider regions, sponsored by Glynwood and Angry Orchard, and the acquisition and planting of 5,000 cider apple saplings to 15 farms in New York.

  • 85% of all food waste in the United States happens at home or in food businesses, including restaurants.* Glynwood recently hosted a one-day workshop for regional chefs on the growing interest in solving this problem. A collaborator in our Regional Food program and our co-host for the event, Eric Gabrynowicz of Restaurant North issues a call to action to other chefs and home cooks to purchase smarter and with a long-term vision for eliminating food loss.

  • The practice of visiting farms can be considered a convergence of the agriculture and tourism industries: farm tours or “stays,” in which guests partake in the products and activities of their host. Well-established in Europe (the agriturismo sector in Italy has been protected under government policy since 1985), agritourism is not formally entrenched in the U.S. as an industry or pastime, despite an obvious surge of interest nationwide in all things locavore. This 2015 white paper co-authored by Glynwood and Katharine Millonzi presents an examination of the potential for Hudson Valley farms and their communities to usher in a new era of agritourism.
